Cataract surgery scheduled, informed about different types of iol lenses. Qualitative differences between the lenses? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi Dr XXXXXXX . Good evening
Good evening, how are you?
What about you
I am good
sure go ahead
My mother is scheduled to have a cataract surgery
The doctor over there have advised there are four different types of IOL lens
It says a foreign co will cost 0000 MNC will cost 0000 and Indian co will cost 0000
I wanted to know is there any qualitative difference between the lenses
among the three
I need a few answers before I can help
How old is your mother?
is the surgery been done in both eyes?
no right now only in the one eye
does she wear glasses right now?
for both near and distant vision ?
or only for near or distant vision?
She wears for both near & far ..
Then the best option I think would be to get a multifocal and accomodating lens
Crystalens is one company which makes it
And is this a Indian co or a Foreign /MNC
let me check this for you
its a foreign company and its a multinationa;
Bausch and lomb makes it
I would rather have you speak with your ophthalmologist about the type
that is the most important thing I believe
I understand that
But I would need some time to find out the proce etc
Yes .. sorry got disconnected
To actually answer your question
dont use a foreign brand
But I would prefer a multinational thing than an Indian one
the quality control is usually better
Ok.. Actually .. The way it was suggested sounds too general . They should have suggested the names of the company with prices .
so you can ask the specifics and get back
We'll be happy to help
It sounds like I am going to some general shop and the shopkeeper is suggesting Indian / Foreign / MNC
oK thanks for all the help and bye for now
